An ihr Auge

Language: German (Deutsch)

   Du wunderbares Räthsel,
Sprich, was bedeutest Du?
Du deckest selbst geöffnet
Ein süß Geheimniß zu.
 
   Du kühle Meerestiefe,
O sprich, was in Dir ruht?
Du goldne Flammenquelle,
Woher die ew'ge Gluth?
 
   In Dir erglänzt die Sonne,
Und doch ist's in Dir Nacht!
Die Sterne glänzen helle
Zugleich mit Mondespracht!
 
   Von Liebe und von Sehnsucht
Sprichst Du wohl allzumal;
Das Licht ist Deine Rede,
Und jedes Wort ein Strahl!
 
   In diesen süßen Worten
Lies't wohl kein Mensch sich satt,
Wenn auch von Allen Keiner
Dich ganz verstanden hat.
